Much of what we know today about how Islam views Jews and Judaism comes from news sources reporting from areas of conflict. But what does Islam really have to say about Jews and Judaism?  In this 6-week course, we will investigate the Muslim attitude toward and depiction of Jews and Judaism, starting from the Qur’an itself. We will look at the relationship between Muhammad and the Jews of Medina; the portrayal of Jews in the classical and later Islamic sources; and, Islamic legal rulings on Jews and Judaism.
